Toronto Catholic District School Board

International Day for Eradication of Poverty

October 17, 2017


In this Year of the School across the Toronto Catholic District School Board, it is appropriate to acknowledge the day to eradicate poverty. Acts of charity are driven by the desire to help those in need--those who are less fortunate, who have less than we do, who need support, kindness, acceptance and love.
